Here is one of Aluna Joy's original articles in Center of the Sun, introducing the Star Elders
Introducing The Star Elders
Who are they … and what do they do?
I was 2 or 3 years old when I first realized that I was not alone in the universe. One early morning I had slipped outside my parents home and in dawns first light I connected with a group of very loving and glowing band of joyous beings. They felt like my true family. If I had been older I might have called them my guides.. or my angels… or even my guardians, but to me they became simply my "buddies". This was the beginning of a life long connection.
Over years as I grew up, the buddies showed me many things. They showed me how to connect with nature in a mystical way. The local birds and animals of the area where I lived in southern California, were drawn to me and I to them. The hawk, the owl, the dove, snake and spider even the Mocking Bird that I named Pepe’. I didn’t understand that this union with nature was any thing special. It just was. It was natural.
They also showed me how to enter interdimensional worlds. As I wandered they would guide me to vortexes of heighten energy or power places. To me they simply felt like churches, my special private sanctuaries in nature. Today we know these places are honored the world over by ancient cultures as sacred sites. This connection with earth and life was a natural to me as breathing. It didn’t seem special or out of the ordinary. It was perfectly natural to be at one with life. I was shocked that my family and friends didn’t understand what I was talking about. They could not feel the shifts in the earth, nor did they connect with the life around them. I felt alone and confused.
It wasn’t until 1990 during an over night stay in a sacred site called Palenque, in Chiapas Mexico that I finally asked the buddies who they were and why were they were with me. Up till then they had just been "the buddies". They "jokingly" referred to themselves as the 20 Gods of Time. They were the ones that anchored the culture of the Maya on Earth. The Maya were a culture that attracted me since childhood, but I knew little about them. They continued to say they were not Gods at all, but what they were seen as by the Maya people because of their unusual ability to manipulate the environment and to come and go at will.
But if not Gods… who are the buddies?
The Star Elders, a group of Cosmic Star Walkers, have come to Earth over and over and over again. They came to observe the cycles of Earth and wanted to know why Earth seemed to be out of sync with the rest of the universe. If you ever felt totally alone, yet still felt there is something or someone else out there… this is why! We are just a bit out of sync with it so we can’t see it yet. They fell in love with the people of earth and decided to stay a while to teach what they knew. Everything was done in a sense of fun, ease and great humor.
The Star Elders have been coming here as early as pre-historic times. They have influenced eras we do not have memories of or historical account. They were here in the times of the Atlantis and Lumeria, the birth of Incan Worlds, at the birth of the Egyptian era, the Himalayas in Tibet and a belief system that Buddhism was built on. They spent time on the sacred mountains in North America where the I AM master teaching sprung up from. Anywhere a culture, religion or tradition seem to spring up from nowhere fully developed, the Star Elders were a part of that evolutionary jump. They planted seeds of cosmic truth in different times and locations, and lets things evolve naturally. This is why we can discover common threads between beliefs and traditions in most ancient cultures. The foundations for these cultures came from the same source - from the people from the Stars, the Bird Tribes, the Star Walkers… How these truths developed into seemingly different cultures was at the whim of the local people, but the foundation of truth has remained even today.
The Star Elder are very much like Ascended Masters we know of today. They work with the Great White Brother Hood (not based on the color of the skin or gender); Lord Meru and the Brotherhood of the 7 Rays; Archangel Michael and other Archangels; Jesus - Jesuha - Sananada - Christ; Mother Mary; Saint Francis; Buddha and a multitude of Hindu / Buddhist Masters, and the list goes on and on. Now this sounds a bit far fetched but on the other side these guys all know each other and work together toward a common goal to empower humanity into mastery and to guide us thought this shift of the ages that is upon us!
The last time the Star Elders were on Earth in physical form was about 800 years ago… in a area we now called Guatemala, in a site called Quirigua. They had finished measuring the new Earth land masses after huge changes in environment. These shifts happened over 10,400 years ago and still are the basis of our catastra-phobia of end time today. They had calculated the very complicated cycles of life on earth and how they related to the cosmos. The Star Elders knew the earth was about to enter a cosmic cocoon to be transformed from a worm into a butterfly. It was time for them to go. They could not be here for this process. We were on our own. They left and went back to the stars.
This was the begging of a time we call dark cycles, medieval times, a time of forgetfulness when the darkness seemed to rule over truth and light. It was a time where humanity seemed to devolve instead of raise it self. There was war, famine and horror beyond description. Beautiful civilizations fell to the twisted hands of barbaric and greedy warriors. We are just now coming out of that dark cycle. We are crawling out of the cocoon and stretching our wings. We do feel the pressure of this transformation and feel a deep longing for some thing or some one or some place we can not describe as yet.
A few years back I had the honor to be with a group of Maya Elder in the highlands of Guatemala, that still retained the stories and cosmology of their cosmic teachers. It took me over 12 years to find them. Even today the Maya tell a story about the last of the Star Elders and how during a great celebration they disappeared… their white robes dropped to the ground and they were gone in a site called Quirigua! They also know that the calendars/cycles did not come from the indigenous Maya, but people from the stars. They call these starry ones the Invisible Council. The Maya still use 20 different cycles that the Star Elders taught them, to understand humanity and earth. Each year the Maya celebrate the beginning of their sacred calendar on 8 Batz days. On this day they still commune with the Invisible Council for guidance. The living Maya have not forgotten their cosmic teachers… and I think we are just beginning to remember them.
Today the Star Elders work with me as a team in my Star Elders sessions and Pilgimages to Mexico and Peru. We are always together. I see them as 20 very tall androgynous beings in long white robes that feel a bit like Viking Angels. They have a very twisted sense of humor especially when I get too serious. They do not have individual names but speak with one voice. They know each other by frequency not by a verbal names like we do here. The Star Elders is a name I gave them. Verbal names have a vibration that could restrict ones limitlessness so they don’t like names, but tolerate "Star Elders" and their calling card for us. To be honest they really like the name "the buddies". Buddies implies that we are friends… equals. No one is higher or lower than the other. They have always been uncomfortable with being on a pedestal. They know if we put them above us that we dis-empower ourselves, a sign of a true and good teacher.
The buddies transmit what they want to share in a ball of thought. In this ball is the history of literally everything… and very confusing at first. They do not see the separation between events, times and space, like we do. To describe one thing they have to describe everything and then point to what they are focusing on. In our relationship together I have had to remind them of duality … beginning and ending and how to communicate in a way that I and others can understand. We meet somewhere in the middle. They are getting better at separating out what they want to say from everything else, and I am getting better at reading the ball with the pointer in it. Whew! Like any worth while relationship it has been work.
In sessions… the Star Elders are real, blunt and direct… but also very inspirational and uplifting. If you are looking for an excuse not to evolve they will push that button. If you are looking for answer from them because you don’t trust you self, they will not help you but help you learn to trust yourself so you can hear your own truth! People feel better, more empowered and joyful after a sessions for the most part.
In pilgrimages to sacred sites the Star Elders guide us in our journey to discover answers within ourselves and also go out ahead to smooth the way for us, avoiding any mishaps or problems that are so prevalent in third world countries. Some time they even show up for a visit.
The Star Elders also influences my writings and sometime even channel entire part of my articles. If you are interested in reading some of this work.
In closing this very brief history and introduction to the Star Elders...
The Star Elders wanted to say their is nothing normal or natural about the way we live right now. It is not normal or natural to feel separation from each other and all life and from the creator. There is nothing natural or normal with our limiting ideas about manifesting everything and anything we want, at any time we want. It is not normal or natural to get sick, to age, or to die either… It is not normal to struggle to survive. It is not normal to hate, to be jealous, to be angry, to be greedy, to lie to cheat to steal…. All these come from the lack we feel in our lives and the lack is just an illusion we bought into. They wonder why we agree to such limitations and hope our continued interaction will end the nonsense, end the horror of waking up in a beautiful world not knowing who we are and why we are here, or the power to do any thing about it.
They remind us that we are much closer to the big shift then we know. The end of the world scenarios are not true but come out of a past memory. The big shift will come . . . but this time it will be a HUGE SHIFT in consciousness that will end the illusions and give freedom back to humanity that is our natural birth right. Have patience and perseverance and don’t give up. We are almost home.
